Virtual Canada Day 2020: Turban, Eh? Zone

Submitted by Gurmat on Mon, 06/29/2020 - 10:06

While this year we are not able to bring out the colourful turbans at the City's annual Canada Day celebrations, we are excited to announce our participation in the very first Virtual Canada Day put on by the City of Abbotsford! 

The festivities will begin on July 1 and will continue throughout the month of July. Although the celebrations will look a bit different this year, Canada Day favourites and Gurmat Center's popular Turban, Eh? zone can still be experienced from the comfort of your home!

This year's theme is "Celebrating Community." We hope all of our Gurmat Center families will join us as we celebrate this amazing community we call Abbotsford! 

Keep reading for an outline of what we will be showcasing this year!
